    30 January 2017 ( #poetry, #theEYEandI )

    From the eyes of a singer The world is music Carefully arranged in choruses and stanzas Made possible with strings and keys, beats and drums And without them, life is baseless And as each chord progresses As the sound graduates to the moments of unknown...

  • THE EYE OF PERSPECTIVES 2

    02 February 2017 ( #poetry, #theEYEandI )

    From the eyes of an artist The world is a museum of artworks And it is to man what he makes of it His life is the paint brush And his deeds are the artwork at the end of the day So everyman is an artwork that gets finished immediately after their demise...

  • THE EYE OF PERSPECTIVES 3

    02 February 2017 ( #poetry, #theEYEandI )

  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR NIGERIA

    01 October 2016 ( #poetry )

    Over years and decades of hard work From grass to amiable grace When our bare bent backs were brutally beaten by stripes of the scorching sun And our dark skins were familiar with the sounds of lashes We reminisce those ceaseless seasons when our faces...

  • LIFESTYLE

    18 November 2016 ( #poetry )

    Seconds, minutes and hours Days tread into the threshold of weeks Months and years, decades mingle into the playground of centuries Style like threads have been interwoven and interlaced into the fabrics of mankind And in the confines of fashion we somehow...

  • IN THE SPEED OF LIGHT: FROM AGES TO AGES

    25 November 2016 ( #Article )

  • LOVOPHOBIA

    27 November 2016 ( #poetry )

  • EDEN BEFORE EDEN

    27 November 2016 ( #poetry )

    I’m from a place where agriculture found its birth Where the grasses grow greener regardless of the seasons reasons because over here fruitfulness is not voluntary but compulsory A place where the sun steadfastly shines and brightens the dark face of...

  • MEMORIES THAT FADE NOT

    27 November 2016 ( #poetry )

    When will the time come when I get to see him Even his Shadow and not get worked up or any emotions at all. How long am I going to keep feeling this way for one who doesn't even notice my presence. Like a face behind the mirorr that never gets to be appreciated...

  • A FRIEND CALLED LONELINESS

    28 November 2016 ( #poetry )

    Like a void longing to be filled, like a voice yearning to be heard Like a groom awaiting his Bride. So was he.... Unable to speak but filled with the voice of thousand's. He sat pondering and wondering, how fast time fly's not withstanding mother-natures...

  • THE BLAME SESSION

    30 November 2016 ( #poetry )

    THE VOICE OF ADAM You were a subtraction of my sum The genesis of disobedience A formula that diluted my established equations I was content with the authority he delivered to me like a Christmas passel With wisdom vast enough to identify every other...

  • I will wait

    14 June 2016 ( #poetry )

    Dear Eve. ,I know we haven't met yet but At night the organs of my thoughts bed wet with fear Every morning i mournWith torn robes of my heart And ashes covering the scalp of my skull i wonder Why teens like us bury ourselves in a casket of false love...

    T'was on the 11th of July In a big hall filled with large crowd Hours had long passed like the time they were And late i was as i found myself in the audience listening to the discussion session As this tall dark dude in front of me on the next row requested...

    11 December 2016 ( #poetry )

    She stands at the center of it all, yet not God All but he, stand tall hiding from the stare of men’s sight for she is a lady of the night Her eyes are the pathway too her leer Her walls are down for they are guarded to insecurity She draws you in with...

  • TWO HOMES ARE BETTER THAN ONE

    19 January 2017 ( #poetry )

    His sleep gets interrupted by the alarm of tears gushing out from mother’s eyes And in conscious ignorance he walks to the scene As he sees her drowning in a pool of her own salty liquid And in a bid to become a hero he joins the already befallen For...

  • BEHIND THE COLLAR

    22 January 2017 ( #poetry )

    Behind the collar lies blood, dust, marrows and veins Lies mistakes swept beneath the carpet of our Lord’s mercy and grace Behind the collar lies sacrifice, selflessness and the urge to make the world a palace for HIS presence Behind the collar lies tears...

  • WHAT IS WRONG WITH BEING BLACK?

    24 January 2017 ( #poetry )

    She handed me the book And its title became my muse As I stare at the cover page hoping to find answers to the question that marks an x on my chest What is wrong with being black? Why is my skin the color of crime? And why am I used as a case study for...

  • LETTER TO DEATH

    25 January 2017 ( #poetry )

    You come guarded like an arms man Paying deaf ears to the reasons made by your victims You take who you delight in And it’s sad you’re never satisfied even when you get your fill You’re a glutton for corpses, both great and small You invade homes without...

  • THE IDOL

    30 January 2017 ( #poetry )

    She’s an idol An icon of emotional stimulation She lives in a generation that defines her worth by the size of her backside and the weight of her before She struggles to be accepted so she goes as far as faking her identity with those implants that in...

  • THE WHOREHOUSE

    31 January 2017 ( #poetry )

    She dances in the shadows As darkness is a word her syllabus are all way too familiar with She’s unstable like the climate And her forecast is nothing but thunder storms and little degrees of sunshine She hides behind the tower of her smile like Babel...

  • THE EYE OF PERSPECTIVES 5

    06 February 2017 ( #theEYEandI )

    From the eyes of a photographer The world is a colony of beauty Wrapped up in shapes, forms and lines Only he makes the perfect angles with the ruler of his eyes and mind And as he stares through the lens He sees a world of abstract possibilities He navigates...

  • THE BEEHIVE

    08 February 2017 ( #poetry )

    She is honey Vicious sweet fluid produced from the nectar of God’s hands Chased by bees as men who come buzzing in sounds of love both fiction and real With proboscis as in-betweens dying to taste of their substance And it’s sad enough that some honey’s...

    29 November 2016 ( #musical covers )

    There’s a girl but I let her get away It’s my entire fault cause I let pride get in the way And I’ll be lying if I said I was ok About that girl, the one I let get away I muted the voice of conviction steaming out of my lungs My thoughts were half baked...

  • THE BRIDGE

    01 December 2016 ( #Article )
